Boynton Boys Advance to Finals with Big Win over Derryfield!
The boys baseball team faced Derryfield on Tuesday in the semifinal game of the Tri-County League Tournament.
In the pregame talk I tried to instill one message to the team. I told them “both teams want this game and the team that wants it the most will enjoy the victory. Well, apparently the Bulldog boys wanted this game more than one could hope for. Their desire to win materialized into an excellent execution of both offense and defense sending the Cougars home early with a 14 - 4, five inning mercy rule finish.
Jack C. threw another great game with 6 strikeouts while only walking 3 batters.
The offense put up 14 runs with all 9 players contributing with hits. The final run which ended the game was scored by Ryan O. who as a pinch runner in the bottom of the 5th stole 2 bases on a pickoff attempt and then scored on a pass ball which put the team up by 10 runs. I’ve given him a new name “ Ryan the Roadrunner “.
The boys will now face Hopkinton on Thursday in the final.
